6 Rev.S08 Example Use the graph of f ( x ) = x 3 - x 2 – 9 x + 9 and the factor theorem to list the factors of f ( x ). Solution The graph shows that the zeros or x -intercepts of f are - 3, 1and 3 . Since f ( - 3) = 0, the factor theorem states that ( x + 3) is a factor , and f (1) = 0 implies that ( x - 1) is a factor, and f (3) = 0 implies ( x - 3) is a factor . Thus the factors are ( x + 3)( x - 1), and ( x - 3) . http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules.

8 Rev.S08 Example http://faculty.valenciacc.edu/ashaw/ Click link to download other modules. Find all real solutions to the equation 4 x 4 – 17 x 2 – 50 = 0. Solution The expression can be factored similar to a quadratic equation . The only solutions are since the equation x 2 = –2 has no real solutions.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
